Check out the right column, fourth picture down, on the main gardenweb plant photo gallery. I think it's the same. It's a member of the Legume family called Cockspur Coralbean (Erythrina crista-galli). Wyman's Garden Encyclopedia calls it a shrub, native to Brazil, which gets 15 feet tall and is hardy in zone 10.
